Final U.S. Open Cup Betting Analysis: Nashville SC at Orlando City SC
Both teams have an advantage heading into this quarterfinals soccer game. Nashville is in better form than Orlando City. The match happens on Orlando’s pitch.
Because this takes place in Orlando, we should expect the home team to play their best soccer. But even if Orlando plays their best, they could end up losing this game.
In the last five head-to-head matches, Nashville, by far, has been the better squad. The road team in this is undefeated in the last five matches, drawing 3 times and beating Orlando City twice.
The last head-to-head impresses the most. Nashville dusted Orlando City 3-1. Hany Mukhtar scored a couple of goals. Mukhtar knocked in the first at minute 21 and then scored again at minute 74.
Nashville dominated even though Orlando won time of possession. Yes, the match happened in Nashville, but the winners produced 6-of-9 shots on goal while only 2 of Orlando’s 9 shots were on target.
Nashville knows how to beat Orlando. Not only that, but they’re playing better than the home team. Nashville wins in regulation.
